My mission is to take away your property pains: clutter, toxins, inability to sell, design disasters, overwhelm or sly looks from the Joneses (as if you care!).

With over 30 years’ experience of  moving, renovating and working in various creative industries I have worn many hats: property developer, artist, interior designer, paper sculptor, muralist, sales & marketing rep, design & development manager, de-clutterer, house doctor…. many of which I have put to good use here and in the books.

It’s about taking away the headaches: Selling faster and for more money; relieving house-blog overwhelm; reducing the stranglehold of clutter or sick-building syndrome and creating healthy, comfortable spaces at home or work. 

Download a book, use the eMend or book an appointment. I work on a daily rate and am happy to roll up my sleeves. Let’s sort it!

What some nice people said…

‘Gill is an inspiration.  She helped me look at my house in a new light.  Her energy and focus were amazing as we whooshed through my house decluttering and moving furniture to breath new life into our home.
Gill came to help declutter and redress the house for remarketing, but in the process we fell back in love with our house.  She made me look at things through a viewer’s eyes and gave me the impetus & energy to help to clear the house and my mind.  The whole process was cathartic and helped us really see what was important, not just in the home but in our lives!
Creativity exudes from every pore of Gill’s being, from innovative positioning of furniture in areas I hadn’t even thought of, to simple practical solutions with items I already had.  She always tried to resolve issues without resorting to a large budget first, but if necessary she was there to help make decisions when appropriate.  Her eye for detail is phenomenal, so her styling is wonderful.
We have reception spaces split over two floors, and had a colourful teenager’s Games Room on the main entrance floor.  With Gill’s help and guidance we transformed that room into the Cream & Black Family Cinema room.  We love it so much, it’s hard to go to bed it’s so comfortable and stunning, everyone now loves that room!
We had a very colourful home with bags of personality and I didn’t want to make it grey and clinical.  Gill helped me to neutralise the house yet retain it’s personality.  In fact the house now has a much more relaxed, restful feel more enveloping & welcoming.  There is a greater feeling of space and calm, and visitors are noticing the house’s features as if they are new.  The whole process has enhanced the house’s own beautiful features yet it still feels like home rather than a characterless show home.  The house feels updated without us having moved!  
Gill is incredibly talented.  I wouldn’t hesitate engaging her services again.  She’s essential if you want to make the most of your home.  Thank you SO much.’  Sue & Thomas,  Richmond 

Hi Gill, You’ve offered nice ideas, as well as investing lots time and effort to get started on this project, so I am definitely planning to ask you to help further with the planning and decor!’. Pamela, Cambridge.

I think the service you offer is superb. It’s very daunting seeking advice on something as subjective as your own home and possessions. I definitely didn’t want the standard interior consultation where you come away having been sold a ‘new look’ achieved by buying a whole load of new stuff. It’s all a bit contrived. It sounds silly but you’ve helped me keep a real feel to the room – warts and all!!! It’s a great skill.’ Amanda, Yorkshire.

‘Dear Gill, We both Love it. It is so so stunning. You are really talented’  …  ‘Brilliant woman‘. Susannah, Hove.

‘Hi Gill, I was the photographer that came and photographed your house at the weekend. I meant to tell you at the time, I thought your house was wonderful, one of the best I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a few. Congratulations’.  Jerry Webb.

‘Omigod!!!! Your house is absolutely stunning!!!!’. Linda Thompson, London.
